With the foot peg in position and linkage...
looks good ready to see chips fly
I'll make a couple prototype sets but I cant finish the design until I get my off-set brake lever - should have been here by now, so hopefully any day. I need to see if any mods are required to the brake lever in this new position - it will get close to the pipe.
not sure if this helps or not but here is a pic or 2
Thanks - That does help, but Im going to need the lever to be sure. It shipped yesterday, so I should have it any day.
The cad design is done on the plates and now just need to place the lever in its new location to see if mods are required to the lever - hope not, but will figure it out soon.
The new peg lowering brackets.....
Hope to have the real ones soon and on the bike.
Anyone know the year, model or anything on this sporty?
Looks alot like my old '64.
This bike was at the Quail gathering in Carmel Valley a few weeks ago:
From autoweek website: The 1968 Harley-Davidson is expected to sell for around $90,000 Photo by Bonhams & Butterfields.
Thanks for the info and pic. That bike is dead sexy.
Your bike is absolutely killer too. I'm sure the info is back there somewhere, but what is your swingarm off of?
Thanks. I designed the swingarm - It is cnc machined from billet 7075-T651 aluminum, then clear anodized (which looks gold on this material).
That looks like an Harley XLRTT vintage 1958 to 1960 or so I had a 1958 XLCH that looked like this only had a all white tank and a different front brake assembly. You could aldo get a dual carb setup for these. Great bike light and powerfull for the time, no British bike could keep up with these,
The rear fender, mud flap, rack, brake light & blinkers are installed and wired. I like the way it came out.
I left room between the seat and the rack to put a small tool kit bag. The rack holds 2x Touratech plastic cans for carrying fluids.
The other side....
Still a few more things to do - lowered foot peg brackets, kickstand, seat, skid plate, spark arrestor.
All I need are the pegs though, and Im riding !!!
More detail of the rear fender / rack....
Fender / Rack...
I made the lower fender from a sheet of aluminum - cut it to shape with tin snips, then made a mud flap from an old tube... Came out better than I though - cheap too
that looks feckin amazing i bet it sounds bloody fantastic too
Been watching this build since day one and am so impressed with the quality of everything. So nice to see people who can do things the way they want and have it turn out like I'd like it to!
Rare to see a bike with a larger rear brake disk than front too
